He seemed nice enough, but he wound up submitting about $40K of billings for nothing. I hate to say it, but we got taken.

Dr. Abidin performed surgery to remove the bags under my eyes and the sack of loose skin under my chin. The operation was quick, relatively painless and more than a year after the procedure I couldn't be more pleased with the results. Dr. Abidins manner was such that I had complete trust in his ability to produce the results I wanted and that trust was not misplaced. I would add that the cost of the procedure was far less than I had expected. He's also a really nice guy I'd highly recommend.

Simply, Dr. Michael R. Abidin is the BEST. My wife has been suffering from severe sinuses for years & years on daily basis. Dr. Abidin performed a small surgery with consistent follow ups. Thank GOD she is wayyyyy better and the pain is gone. It was a very hard decision for us to make but we trusted his judgement and everything went well. What I really admire about Dr. Abidin is his generosity and patience. Although our insurance was expired,the Dr.was able to see my wife twice with no charges

Great doctor. Dr Abidin doesn't stop until he's fixed your illness/complaint. Our entire family (6 adults) has been his patient for allergies, chronic sinus problems, surgeries etc over the last 12yrs; nothing was ever left unresolved. The entire staff and other doctors at Metro ENT are all great as well.
